Manville News, December 12, 1941

Ok, that last post was kind of thin for following up a few month hiatus. So I decided to digitize another issue of the Old Manville News. This one is from the week of December 12th, 1941. There are a number of great articles in here including a debate to put in the underpass on Main Street (you know the one the trucks alway crash into). Previously it had just been a regular crossing just like the one over on 13th, which started to cause a major traffic jam every time a train came through, which if you think about it… back then, right next to a major factory, would have been a LOT. Back in the early days of this blog I did a big huge post about it… you can see it HERE

Here is a link to the digital issue Manville News 12-12-41 OCR

In the meantime I’ll remind you that the text in these issues are mostly searchable if you are looking for names or specific information. You can download them, and I recently realized that on most phones you can actually view the pages right on your phone. I’m working on a system to make these actual posts searchable as well… it’s proving to be a challenge. In the meantime enjoy.
